Although I have not fired this gun yet. The reason why I purchased this gun was I fired my friends S&W 686 3" barrel. Because it only had a 3" barrel I thought it wouldn't be that accurate. I was wrong. The gun was right on, well balanced and felt solid when firing. Bud's had a decent price so, I bought one. Fast and reliable shipping as usual from Bud's. So far I am very satisfied. Thanks...Jeff G.

Beautiful, smooth shooter! It does sting a little when firing using the wood grips, but still very usable for self defense.

One of the finest revolvers ever made, hands down. This is an absolute classic I think any gun collection needs to have. Fan girling aside, Its a full frame 357 so even the most powerful hard cast loads are pretty manageable. The 3in version is easy to carry at the hip for a hunting/backwoods sidearm. The wooden grips are just beautiful, not very comfortable to shoot with, but when i go to shoot it I slip on a Houge monogrip and that takes care of that. Had a pretty standard S&W heavy double action pull with a very light and crisp single action. Gun is very very accurate and reliable as the day is long. I love the 7 shot, 1 more shot doesn’t seem like much but if its thats extra shell that saves your hide, then thats all that matters. Bottom line after all that rambling… This is the quintessential 357, you should stop thinking about it and just buy it, you will not be dissapointed.

I have had the 686 3” for a few years now and I love it. But, since the Colt Python 3” has has come out and is available I thought I would do some research with the thought of trading the S/W for the Colt. Although the Colt may have an action that is smooth as glass while the action on the S/W is excellent I found 3 or 4 reasons to keep the 686. I found the wood grips on the 686 fit my hand better. Reportedly some of the rear sights on the Colt are loose witch can be replaced by Wilson Combat sights. The S/W factory sights are excellent. Also I use SpeedBiz speed loader on the 686 which are not availed for Colt. And I like the look or the round but on the grip on the 686 on a 3” revolver. So why go though the hassle of changing?

This was my first revolver purchase, after many semiautomatics. Being able to finally shoot the powerful 357 cartridge was a thrill. This gun is very controllable shooting both the 38 specials, and 357s. Easy to clean; just a beautiful piece of gun work. With its 7 rounds of 357 this gun is a fantastic personal/home/vehicle protector. I've purchased 2 other S&W revolvers, based on my positive experience with this one.

This Revolver is my baby favorite of all. Reliable and very durable Smith & Wesson is king!

As usual Budsgunshop was the best. This gun is a way better shooter than I will ever be. S&W 686 4 inch .357 Magnum/.38 Special. What a great gun. I've put about 500 rounds through it, about half magnums and half specials and zero issues. I can get a nice group of magnums at 25 yards and a better group with specials. Like all my Smiths, before I start shooting, I like to have a functions check or a break in period before I consider taking it to the range. After an initial inspection (visual inspection and a general cleaning) I make sure the screws are set and secure. I check the rear sight mounting screw, access plate screws, grip screw and the cylinder latch set screw. I also check the screws during and after firing as well. This is a finely made handgun. This seven shot L frame fits me well and is a pleasure to shoot. Buy this gun. Shoot it and shoot it often. Have a nice day.

Beautiful gun could not be happier with my purchase. Buds was great as usual.

Very happy with this one. Looks great and shoots very well. The double action trigger is really smooth and crisp and reasonably light for DA. The finish was not as polished as I would prefer; more of a brushed finish. A few hours with a little polishing compound and it looks fantastic. No remorse with this one! Although I do wish S&W would get rid of the lock that nobody uses.
